Perfect Sentiments Challenge 04: Season's Greeting with a Sketch

Another week has already passed and here we are again with a brand new challenge from The Perfect Sentiment!

I hope you had fun with last week's embossed get well cards. Now I hope you are ready for more fun this week making a Holiday card using a wonderful sketch! I am sure you'll want to join us on this one; Patti's Creations will be our sponsor this week- offering a prize to our lucky winner!

Here is the card I came up with to share with you and hopefully get you inspired to play along with us:

I started out with Stampin' Up!'s Baja Breeze card stock for my base. Then I stamped snowflakes from SU!'s Snow Swirled set in Baja Breeze ink randomly all over the front of the card.

I added a strip of Brushed Silver card stock, and PTI white card stock which I had run through my Big Shot using the poinsettia embossing folder.

I love these little stockings made with the Stitched stockings stamps and the stocking punch. And by putting silver glitter on the tops, heels and toes, the sparkle really makes the card light up! I adhered the tiny jingle bells with glue dots. Behind them is a strand of wired silver tinsel trim.

For the snowflake I used a Baja Breeze colored felt flurries snowflake and loaded it up with Dazzling Diamonds and a big sparkly rhinestone.

For my sentiment, I used SU!'s Christmas Punch set. This was stamped in Baja Breeze ink and cut with an oval punch. Then I dotted silver Stickles all around.

And there you have it: my challenge card for this week! Now, go over to The Perfect Sentiment and see the wonderful sketch for this card and join in on the fun! Also, be sure to check out all the other Design Team members to see their beautiful cards for more inspiration~

As always, thanks so much for visiting me today. I'd love it if you'd take a moment to leave me a comment and let me know what you think of this week's challenge.

Wishing you many blessings!
